Many churches are confident that these verses deal with things that remain in the future for us. Howver, by reviewing the use of language in the Old Testament Scriptures and other events that happened historically, we see that this is not necessarily the case.

Accordingly, we review the following elements of the things Jesus said in this passage:

  • The sun and moon would be darkened and the stars would fall from the sky.
  • The Son of Man would be seen coming on the clouds.
  • He would send His angels to gather His elect.

We see how they all were fulfilled (although the last one continues still) as Jesus said they would be, before the generation to which Jesus was speaking had passed away.
